NSBA/AASA Petition on NCLB


NSBA/AASA Petition on NCLB

The National School Boards Association (NSBA) and the American Association of School Administrators (AASA) have joined forces to launch a nationwide petition drive calling on U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan to use his administrative authority to set-aside costly and non-productive regulations under the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) before schools open next fall.


Please consider:


a) adopting the resolution and sending it to Secretary Arne Duncan at the U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue, SW, Washington, D.C. 20202 or email it to arne.duncan@ed.gov  and cc Kathleen Branch at kbranch@nsba.org so that we can stay abreast of how the campaign is going;


b) sending a copy of the resolution to your Senators and Representatives in Congress with a cover letter explaining the need for deregulation through general rules by the Department of Education—not waivers (you can use NSBA’s Online Guide to Congress to send the resolution via email to your members of Congress which automatically cc’s Kathleen Branch. Email is preferred as regular U.S. mail can take several weeks to reach your members of Congress.); and


c) make sure you register your action on the online petition located on the AASA web site.
You can sign the petition as an individual or have your school board adopt it as a formal resolution.
